Whipple operation

I was told I had a tumor and it was 90% chance it was pancreatic cancer, and I would need a whiipple operation. I did my research and found out the whipple operation was a very difficult operation and very few doctors were qualified to perform it. DR. KEOP is the top doctor in the valley. I am happy to say I am alive today because of Dr. Keop and his staff. HE IS A FIVE STAR DOCTOR.

Amazing man

Dr Koep is the most humble man I have ever met. he in lack of better words saved my life. removed contents from inside my body that had been left by a surgeon days before from a simple gallbladder removal surgery. I am so thankful for this man and every nurse I have come across in my stay here has had nothing but kind words to speak about him. I would definitely recommend to someone who was in need of his expertise!

my family member suffered under his care

Such a sad experience, I know a dr. is only human but he completely misdiagnosed my family member and did surgery when it was far too late. This caused more suffering and a quick death. To make matters worse, he was not upfront about the seriousness of the situation or poor prognosis. From everything else I've heard about the man, he's a spectacular physician but in our case he did our family member a major injustice. My prayer is that he learns from his mistakes and supervises his residents better. I want my loved-ones death to not be in vain but be used for improved patient care by the entire team.
